State Representative Laura Fine (D-Glenview) will serve on six committees in the House of Representatives, assignments the freshman lawmaker says will allow her to more effectively advocate on behalf of the concerns of her constituents, according to a press release issued Friday.
“While we all know Illinois has to make some difficult decisions in the future, these decisions are not limited to the budget and pensions,” Fine said. “State officials must continue to implement policies that encourage businesses to grow and create jobs, strengthen education, protect consumers, and ensure that health care is accessible and affordable for all.
"My committee appointments will help me have a greater influence in crafting these policies," she added.
Fine will serve on the House Committees on Business Growth and Incentives, Consumer Protection, Health and Healthcare Disparities, Human Services, and Insurance. She was also appointed to the Appropriations Committee for Higher Education, the press release stated.
“These committee assignments will allow me to address a wide variety of issues in Illinois, and I am excited to work with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to find ways to make our state stronger,” Fine added.
The 17th district includes Skokie, Evanston, Glenview, Golf, Morton Grove, Northbrook, Northfield and Wilmette.
